Dinner Tonight: Mmm Mmm Mexican Lasagna

Finally, I remembered to take food pics!  Tonight’s dinner was an old favorite.  No surprise it’s from the Ray, from her 30 Minute Meals show way back in 2004.  This was one of the first meals I made when I was in college (and had access to a kitchen).  I made it for some friends, and it was a total hit.  I can’t express to you how good this is.  You’ll just have to make it for yourself.  Actually, I guess I will try to express it, considering that is kind of the point of the food posts.  



It’s ridiculously easy to make too, if you need further incentive.  I just browned up some ground turkey (you can use whatever you like—chicken, beef, pork, I’m sure it’s all good).  Then I seasoned it with chili powder, cumin, and onion powder.  Next I added tomato sauce (a small can), taco sauce, black beans, and frozen corn.  Once everything heats through for a few minutes, it’s time to start layering.  This is Mexican Lasagna, remember? 



Half of the meat mixture goes in the bottom of a small casserole dish (mine is 8x8 or 9x9, something like that).  Then tear 2 tortillas so they fit over the meat layer.  Next comes the cheese, which I had some shredded Colby jack so I just used that, enough to cover the tortillas.


Add another layer of meat, tortillas, and cheese, then pop that baby in the oven at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  I know I say this about a lot of things, but you really, really need to make this.  I could probably have it once a week and not get tired of it.  The best part is that it makes the best leftovers too.  



Do you have a favorite go-to meal to make?  If you do, tell me, I’d love to try it!
